I really hate mailing lists - they are dinosaurs for this type of thing.
A web discussion board is a much more powerful and flexible tool for this
type of community. Thread tracking, archiving, searching, dont have to
download 50 emails a day just to monitor a couple threads...cmon its 2003!
Cant we convert this into a discussion board or better yet just make the
usenet group mirror postable from google groups?
There are 4 lists like this one where I have to continuously subscribe and
unsubscribe throughout the year when I want to participate. Also emails get
mirrored on google groups for convenient spam harvesting - its really a pain
in the butt.
